I’m not the type to wonder
Or hide behind a shroud
I’m not the type to hype myself
Or sing my song out loud
Instead I’ll gently ponder 
Inside my quiet home
And grudgingly acknowledge
I was meant to be alone
But I’ll not just maunder
Aimless in the rain 
Instead I’ll be a better me
And help ease others pain


I missed my chance
I was too slow
I didn’t move
I failed to go
And now I lay here
Feeling blue
I missed my chance
To be with you
I wonder if
You’ll ever see
The foolishness
That hindered me
My nerve it failed
So many times
Afraid to whisper
Practised lines
That let you know
My heart’s embrace
My time has past
Love gone to waste

The Battle

Everyone has problems
Everyone has fears
Life throws us adversity
That brings us close to tears

Every time you struggle
To fight against the tide
The battle it will find you
There’s nowhere left to hide

But even when you’re feeling like
There’s nothing left to do
Remember that there’s always
Someone there to help you through

So the battle is worth fighting
The struggle worth the pain
To know that one day real soon
You’ll be happy once again

No one

No one should be lonely
No one should be scared
No one should sit in the dark
And wish that someone cared

No one should face torment
Forced to live a lie
No one should stare longingly
As couples wonder by

No one should be smothered
By fears you cannot see
No one sits and wonders
How no one became me


It’s quiet in this room of mine 
No voices split the air
The silence speaks a thousand words
And no one else is here
No other soul to make a sound
I hum to clear the gloom
The story of my solitude
It echos through my tomb
Its quiet in this room of mine
There’s no one else to see
That silence is a golden word
That’s slowly drowning me


Damaged is a subtle thing
That’s hard for some to see
Damaged are the little things
That go to make up me
Damaged is the way i feel
When the day goes bad
Damaged when i think of you
Leaves me feeling sad
Damaged is the way i’ll stay
Damaged it will be
Until such time
As you pass by
To come to rescue me


I’m different person
Least that’s what they say
I’d really like be the guy to take your blues away
I’m a different person
At least i think that’s true
I’ll never do a single thing to make you sad or blue
I’m a different person
At least I’m gonna try
I’ll never say a hurtful word that may make you cry
I vow I will try harder
To tell a different tale
There’s really not much more to me than every other male
In truth I’m not much different
I’ll never pass a test
There not a lot that makes me any different than the rest
Except I’ll keep on trying
To better every day
To hope on day to fond some one who really wants to stay.


I had a thought the other day
So mad it took my breath away
Outrageous both in word and deed
But this small thought, it spread a seed
It started when I saw your your smile
Grew in my heart it took while
But when i saw your sparkling eyes
Its force took me with such surprise
This thought so pure and so divine
Oh wont you be my valentine


Some things are true
Since time began
The best of us
Is a gentleman
So put her first
look to her eyes
Don’t be the one
To make her cry
Hear her words
Sing her song
Hold her hand
When things go wrong
Notice when
She does her hair
Take the time
To say you care
And when she says
Shes feeling down
Make effort
To shift her frown
Try to be
The best you can
And always be
A Gentle Man
